Four female friends have worked together for forty years for an organization known as the Museum.  Most people have no idea this organization even exists.  It was formed just after WWII and its original objective was to locate Nazis and kill them.  Then they branched out and started killing other bad people who they felt needed killing.  That's what these four female friends did...they killed people.  But now, they're sixty-some years old and the Museum felt they should retire, so they've sent the ladies on a lavish retirement cruise.  However, these ladies still have a lot on the ball and

Ruby Simon is an anti-hero.  She may have killed three people but they all deserved it.  And she's never been suspected of any wrongdoing until now.  Now she's sitting in a police station being accused of a murder she didn't commit - her husband's.  Will her past indiscretions come to light and make her appear guilty the only time she's truly innocent?  Ruby isn't your typical murderer; she just likes to set thing right.  This is a smart, original and entertaining debut.  It was refreshing to read something that didn't remind me of a half dozen other books.
